Amy W. Apon, Ph.D.
Professor, Chair & Lab Director
In addition to directing the Data Intensive Computing Ecosystems (DICE) lab, I currently serve in the Clemson School of Computing as Chair of the Division of Computer Science, and co-Director of the Complex Systems, Analytics, and Visualization Institute (CSAVI). We are exploring new research opportunities with federal agencies, industry, and foundations, and welcome new ideas. During 2015 I was assigned as a Program Officer at the National Science Foundation. I maintain an active research program at Clemson. Areas of research interest include performance modeling and analysis of parallel and distributed system, data-intensive computing, and use of commercial cloud systems for research.
Ph.D. and Assistant Lab Director
Dr. Herzog is a Lecturer in the School of Computing, Director of the
Senior Design/Capstone program in Computer Science, and Research
Scientist in the Data Intensive Computing Ecosystems (DICE) Lab. His
research is in computational social science, with a focus on text
analysis and big data analytics. Dr. Herzog's work develops and
applies scalable solutions to process and extract knowledge from large
volumes of unstructured data, such as speeches, social media,
scientific publications, and newspaper articles. He uses insights
extracted from these data to study political and social problems in
the areas of comparative politics, legislative behavior, and public
Farah is a PhD student in Clemson. Her interest is focused on applying high performance computing to machine learning problems. Currently she is working on improving the performance of some of machine learning algorithms.
Jason is a third year Ph.D. student in Computer Science, with a focus on HPC systems. His interests include high performance networking and computing architecture, and his past research projects have involved software defined networking, network functions virtualization, dynamic network topologies, and synthetic data generation. He also enjoys working on old text games written in C, for some strange reason
Yash is a master’s student in Computer Science at Clemson University working in DICE lab. He has a growing interest in Cloud Computing and architecting cloud-based solutions for domain specific workloads. His research is focused on resource allocation, provisioning and deployment of HPCC Systems on commercial cloud to identify the best configuration for running custom data intensive workloads and analyze various performance trade-offs within the cloud environment.
Daniel N. Smith
Daniel is a senior undergraduate student in Computer Science. He began working with DICE lab in August 2019. His research involves simulating an industrial IoT to Cloud telemetry architecture.
Robert is a Ph.D. candidate in Clemson. His interests are on the systems side of High Performance Computing. Currently he is investigating network performance factors in containerized environments and reliable computer infrastructure using error bounded lossy compression.
Lily is a fourth year Ph.D. student studying in Computer Science at Clemson University. She is currently doing research in the DICE (Data Intensive Computing Eco-Systems) lab in the School of Computing. Her research mainly focuses on Machine Learning, Parallel and Distributed Computing, High Performance Computing.
